Scott Storch Sued By Biz Partners, Claims He’s Back On Drugs
Brad Cohen and Seth Cohen say they paid the producer more than $1 million, which included a weekly salary, a Rolls-Royce Ghost and a rental home in Southern Florida to support his musical comeback.
Despite the arrangement, they had a fallout in December after Storch failed a drug test... which they say voided their agreement, resulting in the forfeit of the car.
"B. Cohen and S. Cohen had an agreement with Storch that B. Cohen and S. Cohen would take the Rolls-Royce Ghost away from Storch if he failed a drug test or it was otherwise discovered by B. Cohen and/or S. Cohen that Storch was using drugs," the lawsuit states. "In mid-December 2015, B. Cohen and S. Cohen discovered that Storch was again using drugs and demanded return of the vehicle. The vehicle is in S. Cohen name and S. Cohen did not want it to become an insurance liability. Upon information and belief, the demand that Storch return the vehicle partially led to B. Cohen and S. Cohen falling out of grace with Storch."
In response, Storch's lawyer Richard Wolfe denied the legitimacy of the agreement, though the Cohen's insist the contract is valid.
"Based on Storch's (a) history of drug use, including evidence of recent abuse; (b) prior squandering of monies received from providing services in the music industry; (c) overt affiliation with Mirsky that has a real threat of diverting monies actually owed to CCS; and (d) sincere concern that CCS will otherwise not be able to collect monies to repay the significant contributions provided by B. Cohen and S. Cohen, an injunction and additional remedies in equity are necessary under the circumstances."
The Cohens are seeking damages for breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, fraud and unjust enrichment.
Wolfe tells THR that there are insufficient grounds for a case.
"The lawsuit attaches documents that are forged," he says. "The lawsuit was filed in violation of federal law and we will be seeking a federal contempt order against the plaintiffs and their lawyers. The lawsuit is not serious and the only reason it was filed is to garnish publicity for the plaintiffs. Accordingly, it will be treated as nonsense."
